Trivia / Skyline

  • Doing It for the Art:
    • Was conceptualized, scripted, directed, produced, and had special effects done by The Brothers Strause, who also shot most of the film in their apartment building.
  • Follow the Leader: Sony has accused the Brothers Strause of trying to capitalize on their upcoming movie Battle: Los Angeles, which also features an alien invasion in L.A. Sounds like typical overreaction to Dueling Movies, right? Not as much when you consider the fact that the FX for Battle: Los Angeles are being done by Hydraulx Filmz, a company owned by the Brothers Strause; Skyline's entire production timeline (from concept to completion) fitting entirely within the production schedule of BLA, and Skyline's scriptwriters being both Hydraulx FX technicians who had no prior screenwriting experience.
